September 2-10, 2023

Join like-minded safari travelers as you venture to Kenya on a true ‘Bucket List Kenya’ experience! Begin with a stay at the famed Giraffe Manor while dining with the tallest mammals on earth, followed by a one week luxury Kenyan safari with Great Plains Conservation.

Your 6 night / 7 day safari will carry you through the Great Migration viewing area of the Maasai Mara. 

Kenya’s diversity of landscapes is reason enough to come to see us and join a safari in Kenya. From the classic savannah and awe-inspiring wildlife viewing of the world-renowned Maasai Mara, the lush Chyulu Hills with their stunning views of the snowcapped Mount Kilimanjaro, Kenya is the finest experience for first-time explorers and multiple repeat visitors. Still, it is also the perfect destination for an active traveller with all the horseback riding, hiking, biking and, of course, for searching for the iconic wildlife that Africa is famous for.

Following Giraffe Manor,

Giraffe Manor

The most unforgettable, bucket-list breakfast in the world.

Stay at Giraffe Manor from September 2-4, 2023

Giraffe Manor is an exclusive boutique hotel, set in 12 acres of private land within 140 acres of indigenous forest in the Langata suburb of Nairobi.  Giraffe Manor is one of Nairobi’s most iconic buildings. The historic manor house has extraordinary appeal, that harks back to the 1930s when visitors first flocked to East Africa to enjoy safaris. With its stately façade, elegant interior, verdant green gardens, sunny terraces and delightful courtyards, guests often remark that it’s like walking into the film Out of Africa: indeed, one of its twelve rooms is named after the author Karen Blixen.

One of the most fascinating things about Giraffe Manor is its resident herd of Rothschild’s giraffes who may visit morning and evening, poking their long necks into the windows in the hope of a treat, before retreating to their forest sanctuary.

Isabelle Finly & Alexis Leeming from ATI enjoyed their bucket-list breakfast in early December 2020!
